Hey everyone! It's Lindsay here, from Crafting While Caffeinated Blog & YouTube Channel, and I have another video tutorial to share with you today! Today's tutorial is all about distressing, specifically Rinea Foil. If you didn't know, all this month Joy Clair Stamps is partnering with Rinea Foil to bring you some fun and shiny projects using some amazing products!
I have previously shared a few different ways to distress Rinea Foil, but today I wanted to do a bit of a round up and share many different ways in one video! Be sure to watch the video tutorial down below for all the details!
The first way of distressing Rinea Foil paper is something I haven't shared before and it's sooo easy. Because Rinea is moldable and will hold it's shape one way to add texture and distress the foil is simply by crumpling it up and then uncrumpling. The foil will hold a lot of the peaks and valleys from the crumpling and some of the larger folds will naturally distress themselves! Super easy!!
I chose the pink foil for the background because I wanted to pair it with the new Hope Stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps. This is a fabulous stamp set to have on hand! It is gorgeously designed. I have used this set before, but instead of uploading that video to YouTube, I've been sharing shorter videos on Instagram. Head HERE to check it out.
On my second project I started by die cutting a piece of the gold foil with a circle die. Then, I dry embossed the dry cut. Rinea Foil is great for dry embossing because it holds it's shape so well. Just be careful with the amount of pressure you use because the foil can tear. Once I had the embossing done, I grabbed a sanding block and lightly ran it over the raised embossed area. This scratches the foil and creates a less shiny, distressed look!
To finish this card I added some stamping behind the embossed die cut with the new Fall Greetings Stamp Set. I also added a banner die cut with my sentiment.
My third and final project does require a special ink pad, but I promise it's well worth it to use with the Rinea Foil. The Ghost Ink Pad from Rinea removes the color from the foil and is great for stamping backgrounds or creating a distressed look on the foil. I like to use the ink pad and swipe it across the foil. After letting it sit for 20 - 30 seconds and wiping it off you are left with a fun duo toned, distressed foil. I also like to ink the edges with Staz On Pigment Ink for the final touch!
To finish this card, I went back to one of my favorite Joy Clair stamp sets, Faith Quotes. I stamped my sentiment in the same Staz On Pigment ink that I used to ink the edges so everything would match!
All of these are fabulous way to add texture to and distress foil paper. They can be used individually or you can combine a few or more on the same project!
I hope you all enjoyed the video tutorial! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used on my projects, you can find them all listed and linked down below! Until next time, happy crafting!!
